Wisc_book_festThe Wisconsin Book Festival, October 7-11th, in Madison, WI will welcome well-known queen and king of comics, Lynda Barry and Harvey Pekar, to our capitol’s downtown this Fall. 

Barry’s new book is “What It Is”, a blend of comics, collage, memoir, and storytelling workbook. 

Pekar is well-known for his autobiographical “American Splendor” comic books, illustrated by many artists, including R. Crumb.  The film, “American Splendor”, starring Paul Giamatti, tells Pekar’s story as a working class everyman.
